Having some issues using the built dist directory of the app. yeoman renames the actual files to have the filename hash, but there is no .htaccess rule to match /scripts/bookmarklet.js to /scripts/b3b4bd.bookmarklet.js

  1. We should change the RewriteRule to be on by default. We should also change the RewriteRule to match letters and digits, not just digits:

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule ^(.+).(\w+).(js|css|png|jpg|gif)$ $1.$3 [L]
  2. We should put the filename hash just before the file extension to work with this rule.

I'm not sure why this matter, the usemin task should handle this transparently. If it doesn't. File a bug over here: https://github.com/yeoman/grunt-usemin
